Most companies will NOT reimburse for “wigs”. Medicare will NOT reimburse for “wigs” or “cranial or hair prosthesis” according to the current laws. Amazed (more like blown away) that the insurance companies still see this as a cosmetic luxury rather than a medical need. It seems like insurance companies would rather pay for counseling and medication to help us cope rather than deal with the actual reason for our pain.
We are asking that you sign this petition in hopes that we get enough signatures to persuade ALL insurance companies to understand that a human wig/cranial or hair prosthesis is a medical necessity and should NOT be deemed as cosmetic need for people diagnosed and living with Alopecia, Our condition for most is a permanent condition. Alopecia is a medical condition and insurances should treat it as so!
Please share this to everyone and ask them to sign this petition. Let's see if we together can make a difference!
